What is a Monetary Account?
A Monetary Account is very similar to a Bank Account. It will be opened with a Financial Institution based in New Zealand and not a High Street Bank. The Account is all based online. All payments will be made online and you can send and receive payments in multi currencies.
Corporate Documents Required
We require a copy of the Corporate Documents for the company that is opening a Monetary Account.
The following Corporate Documents are required:
- Certificate of Incorporation
- Memorandum and Articles of Association (if your type of company doesn’t have memorandum and articles then a similar document which sets out the rules of the company)
Personal Documents Required
The monetary account requires the following personal documents from each officer, beneficial owner and authorised signatories within the company:
- Photo of the applicant holding their ID with their face and the ID clearly visible
- Utility Bill dating within the last 3 months
If the applicant of the company is not an officer within the company, proof that the application can open an account on the company’s behalf may be requested.
If any of the above documents are not in English, a translated copy must be obtained.
The account can be opened in Euros
A visit to the Monetary Account offices is not required. The Account can be opened remotely via email and telephone communication.
The Monetary Accounts requires an activation fee of 125GBP or currency equivalent to activate your account. They also require a minimum balance of 250GBP to be on the account at all times.
